* The one-sided Ichigo/Kish in ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' is much more popular than the OfficialCouple Ichigo/Masaya. Throughout the series, Kish kisses Ichigo against her will, gets in her face more than she wants him to, and threatens to ''kill'' her and Masaya if she doesn't give into his advances. For some reason, the fans in America support this and insist that Ichigo become Kish's.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic has this as a character trait thanks to his past. One good example of it just being in-character is the ''Starchaser'' review, where Critic's only complaint about the robot turned into a SexBot is that it's unsuitable for kids, but Doug in commentary complains about how sexist it is.

* Bernkastel and Lambdadelta in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' take this trope UpToEleven. Being all-powerful witches who will do anything to avoid boredom, a regular "punishment game" for them will involve things like locking each other up at the bottom of a hollow tower, turning all the stars in the sky into diamonds and dropping them, one by one, onto the other one until they are crushed into a pulp.

** In ''Fifty Shades of Grey'', there's the treatment of ''Literature/TessOfTheDUrbervilles'', which is portrayed as a straight romance between Tess and Alec, although this is CompletelyMissingThePoint- ''Tess Of The d'Urbervilles'' is actually about how [[DoubleStandard Victorian double standards]] and the DefiledForever trope mean that Alec's rape of Tess ruins Tess's life, despite it not being her fault.

Alec is less ByronicHero and more DastardlyWhiplash.

* 1934 film ''Film/{{Smarty}}'' is Romanticized Abuse: TheMovie, with Vicki needling her husband into striking her and, after they break up, saying "If he'd loved me he would have hit me long ago." The film ends with Tony tearing Vicki's dress off, slapping her in the face (which causes her to light up with glee), and throwing her on the couch. Vicki gives Tony the "bedroom eyes" look, and as the SexyDiscretionShot pans behind the couch, the last line of dialogue is:
--> '''Vicki''': Tony...hit me again.

* In the ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' supplement ''Ghouls: Fatal Addiction'', the Camarilla was played straight as this kind of organization. The theme of playing the social structure between Vampires and Ghouls as Romanticized Abuse is hinted in the core rulebook as well as many other supplements, but it's much more blatant in "Ghouls". (In this setting, a "ghoul" is a human who drinks vampire blood. The blood makes her superhumanly strong, makes her stop aging, lets her heal faster and increases her sexual urges, but it also enslaves her under the Vampire's will.)

* Most novels by the Creator/MarquisDeSade (the guy "sadism" is named after) stays strictly in Romanticized Abuse territory, being about unrestrained sadism rather than [[SafeSaneAndConsensual mutual]] sadomasochism. It's all played for FetishFuel and political satire about how hypocritical, oppressive and unjust the socioeconomic system really was.
